Hey guys,

Im a newbie to cars in general and I just spent like 2 hours reading all these post about the PassKey and VATS and realized that ive been doing some 'blind' work on it but i might have just f**ked up my car....

i just brought a 92 Pontiac Bonneville off some guy and the engine is like damn-near perfect condition. The car worked fine for a couple of days but then we hada problem with the car not starting. After a couple of days of grief and jumper cables, we cleaned the connectors to the battery and the car started with no problem!

The key was stuck in the in the car...
While it was running...
In the ON position (not steering-wheel lock, this baby was in for good)....

So i had a friend of mine show me "wut to pull out" under the hood to turn it off - so the problem turning the car off was sloved. And because the car was stuck in the ON position, ive have to disconnect the battery to keep it from dying. But the key was still stuck in the ignition. My moms friend went ahead and tried to break the ignition to try and get the key out...

But the key broke...

Went to a parts store (i think it was Discount Auto) and got a ignition-key-tumbler-thingie. We took off the steering wheel column and we put it in the new ignition and the car turns on and everything but it wont start. The Security light flashes and i dont have 500+ to spend on just for a key! Ive been out of work for a while now but this is gettin ridiculous! Is there anyway to disable the security or PassKey? And there are two wires that came with the ignition switch - wut are those for? I mean i just need to get to work and without the car im SO screwed... I really dont care to the security system... If ANYONE can help please do! ive been fighting with this thing for weeks now and im so fustrated....
